Deion Sanders is no stranger to making controversial statements. This is, after all, the guy who tried to say that Rex Grossman (yes, REX GROSSMAN!) was better than Michael Vick, Tony Romo, and Eli Manning last year (WTF?). But, he may have just made his most controversial statement yet.
During a radio interview with KRLD-FM 105.3 in Dallas earlier this week, the former All-Pro cornerback was asked about a recent report about his charter school Prime Prep Academy that alleges that he has been illegally recruiting football and basketball players to the school. And, as he quickly pointed out, he was not happy with the report.
"First of all, this was all started mainly by a Caucasian reporter from a news station, Channel 8, you know who I'm talking about, and he seems like he's the African-American killer," Sanders said. "It's always something against a brother. And, that bothers me. I've never been accused of cheating with anything, in any sports, in any arena, in my life. Now to be accused of something as stupid and simplistic as this and all I have is 30 kids out there…We have a lawyer that's getting ready to tear some butts up, because a lot of the things that were done to our institution was done wrong because you dislike me. Don't allow your disdain for me to affect our kids…That's what's happening."
Sounds like a pretty sticky situation. Stay tuned, because we're sure we haven't heard the last of this.
